ScholarShare, the pilot Institutional Repository at Preston Library/VMI

VMI ScholarShare

Draft Mission Statement

ScholarShare, the VMI Institutional Repository, will showcase and broadly disseminate research at VMI by all members of the community, beginning with faculty research and eventually including cadet research (such as senior and honors theses) and conference proceedings.  ScholarShare will provide stewardship of digital materials, including

  • collection development, by encouraging and facilitating participation and handling copyright issues;
  • organization, by assisting with assignment of Metadata and providing a unified and stable site for VMI research;
  • optimized access, by providing digital materials on the web and optimizing their retrieval;
  • long-term preservation, by providing secure storage and migrating files as formats become obsolete.
